Match Report


On Sunday 25th September 2016 the team had a Division 1 league match away to Leybourne. With all thirteen players available from injury it was going to be a difficult selection for the starting line up. In the first half the play was equal and finished at half time with Ditton being 2-1 up with goals both driven into the far post area by Owen Green and Riwaaj Gurung. The second half required a different tactic as Leybourne came back strong and with a purpose. Dittons defence struggled with the continue onslaught from Leybournes forwards and required lots of assistance from all of the midfield. Time was running out and in the last seven minutes Ditton started to take more of a hold on the game but Leybournes goalkeeper had a very good game which avoided a growth to this lead.

Finally the game finished 2-1 to Ditton Minors but this is mainly due to a fantastic performance from the returning goalkeeper, Keenan Stone, who also received the Man of the Match award.

A well done also needs to go to the Leybourne team for the organisation and drive that they brought to this game
